THB and LKR in the Markets

When determining the best time to make a foreign exchange transaction, in this case the THB vs LKR, you should pay attention to the recent market trends for both currencies.

Thai Baht (THB)

Recent years have been extremely kind to the baht and 2019 has been no exception. The Thai baht has been the best performing currency in Asia for 2019, the baht rose to a 6-year high against the US dollar (฿30.66) and to a 10-year high against the Australian dollar (฿21.35), as well as to long-term highs against a host of other major currencies.

The baht is being supported by Thailand’s large current-account surplus and has benefited from speculation that Thai stocks will soon be assigned a larger weighting in the MSCI Emerging Markets index, which would result in significant amounts of foreign capital entering Thailand.

The team at TradingEconomics.com is expecting slight baht weakness over the coming year, with June-2020 forecasts for USD/THB and AUD/THB of 32 and 22 respectively.


Sri Lankan Rupee (LKR)

As of September 2018, Sri Lanka is at the top of a list of seven emerging market countries that are most likely to join nations such as Turkey and Argentina in a currency crisis according to the investment bank Nomura. "Sri Lanka is at risk of a crisis erupting at any time," the economists noted.

"With foreign exchange reserves of less than five months of import cover and high short-term external debt of around $US7.5 billion, its refinancing needs are large. Political stability also remains an issue."

How to get Best THB to LKR Exchange Rates

All foreign exchange providers charge a fee for providing their service and this fee is usually contained within the exchange rate margin (or difference to the mid-rate).

The transaction margin you end up being charged can be considerably reduced by around a few percent (of total amount being exchanged) for travel money and possibly over 5% to 6% when sending money. The exact potential savings depends on the currencies being exchanged and the amount you are transferring and if you are willing to shop around.

Our real-time foreign transfer and travel money/cards comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.
